Default New "H.H. - Deathfire" Front Cover.



Okay my expectations for this novel(la) are super low. Someone else posted this as a blurb on FB:

"Vulkan lies in state beneath the Fortress of Hera, and yet many of his sons still refuse to believe that he is truly dead. After a seemingly miraculous rescue by the Ultramarines, Artellus Numeon, once captain of the Pyre Guard, urges the other Salamanders on Macragge to leave Imperium Secundus and return their primarch's body to the home world of Nocturne; there to be reborn in the flames of Mount Deathfire. But Numeon grapples endlessly with his doubts and fears for the future of the Legion, while their foes seek to carve out new destinies of their own..."

More of Nick Kyme's Salamanders? Oh dear. I really hope it's not a full novel.

Worst. Name. Ever.

I expect future novels to be called SmashKill, ShootDeath and TripOuch.

While I am sure plenty of people will complain about Kyme and the title, I actually have a real question for everybody who comments. What do you think of the actual cover image? (Neil Roberts artwork)

I really like this one. I think it evokes the ferocity of the Salamanders charging through the fire directly at the reader, as well as their tendency to make their own wargear and enhance what they are given with personal flourishes.

Makes me wonder if they are going to make it through the ruinstorm at all, that is sealing off the ultramar system. Considering that the Salamanders considers the Unbound Flame one of the lost treasures of Vulkan. His casket was labeled as the Unbound Flame in the Unremembered Empire.

Plus Vulkan did set in motion that only few of his treasures would be left, ordering the majority destroyed prior heading to Istvaan, fearing that they would end up in Horus' hands. But a loyal retainer persuaded him to spare some. vulkan naming him the guardian of them as the first forgefather.

The artwork looks amazing. I'd argue it's one of the best covers to date, both in terms of detail and in terms of capturing the subject matter.

At the same time, though, it's a double-edged sword. When Black Library puts artwork of such quality on a mass-release novel but then uses something like this or this, it really makes you question just what it is you're paying extra for.
